    Went to a place in Austria last weekend where some guy had built up an A380 simulator on his goddamn farm. It was fairly realistic, said a guy who wants to be a pilot.

    I also had one fly right above my head at work and **** that thing just rules the skies. Glad it's going out.

    To get really nerdy, this guy's YT channel is great. Basically he's a warbird flyer who's gradually getting his jet rating, flying tough planes like the T6, tons of footage of Oshkosh and heaps of interactions and flying with other pilots.



    I like this video because it introduces the test pilot who pranged his experimental aircraft in the Mojave boneyard last year-ish and it's cool to watch how he works.

    FYI the comments on the crash video are actual cancer. Avoid.

    "WHY WAS HE FLYING AN EXPERIMENTAL PLANE ON A WINDY DAY?! JUST ASKING FOR TROUBLE"

    It's an experimental aircraft flown by a test pilot who draws a paycheck to, y'know, test planes. What's one great test for a plane? Crosswind. They probably waited specifically for it.

    Plus if a plane can't fly if there's any wind, it's not a great plane...

    Have heard he’s the biggest arsehole in aviation. Achievements are unmatched, though.

    If one gust at 20’ = flame out and stall, pilots should know that ahead of flying that plane so they can say no to ever flying that plane.

    Avalon Airshow is on this week, and coincidentally a BUFF is in town for it.
